I make models in my spare time, British tanks from WW1 and WW2 also starting to get back in to watching movies and going to the cinema. I also love music from the 1980s big time as I have seen most bands from the 1980s and I love the Predator series of movies!

this very small Machine Gun Carrier became a major part of the British army and a great export
even though it was cramped tiny and unreliable but it was cheap.
Prototype Carrier notice the vickers machine gun

was given to it and then it was delivered to the Mechanisation Experimental Establishment (MEE) 1935
which has been mention in my earlier Blogs which was at Farnborough.
it was limited to two man at the front and two benches running lengthways a very simple design which also included the engine was central which was a standard Ford V8 and a four speed gearbox and a reverse Gearbox.
